technically no it's not chameleon but it does exhibit some color changing. It's really cool i could stare it all day but i only got to see it for like 5 minutes in very low sun before it was completely dark. In afternoon sun it will be crazy

Looking good! I don't think pics will ever do that color justice as there are just some colors that are hard to capture on film...unless dv/dt comes out to take them.

The word rediculous comes to mind. Not in a bad way. That flake is insane! I hope you dont plan on driving it anywhere but to a car show becasue your gonna be pissed when that expensive of a paintjob gets messed up with rock chips and scuffs. Unless you have one of those clearbra things...

You should have him shoot the rollbar if he has any paint left over.

thanks for the compliments guys. I'm really happy with it. It does draw a little attention but that's ok, it compliments my LOUD exhaust and bov so now the car just seems more complete. I still have to add a few things like my wing and some chrome washer nozzles, new windshield cowl with wiper arms and wipers. Will also eventually get new wheels. so all in all still not done but a lot closer.
